The schedule for the 2017 Fall Dig:
Start October 16th and end November 10th. Weather permitting we will work Monday thru Friday, 9am to 4pm. We will not have a formal training session this year, but will provide the special digging guidance needed for a sensitive prehistoric site as we proceed.
As always volunteers will play a key role in one of the most successful
community archaeology projects in the state. A typical fieldwork day:
Mornings, 9 AM to noon
Lunch breaks, workshops or activities to enhance understanding of archaeology.
Afternoon, 1 PM to 4 PM.
Fieldwork is generally cancelled if the NOAA weather forecast for
Yarmouth Port calls for 60% or greater chance of rain.
We have a range of duties (e.g. digging, screening and recording data)
that should accommodate everyone's interests and abilities.
